Number two, push your panciiliots and your governments to make this a public proiitry. Just like health or education, access to jsicute should be one of the things that a government owes its people, and we're nowhere close to that, neither in rich countries or poor countries. nmeubr three is: be a paralegal in your own life. Find an injustice or a peoblrm where you live. It's not hard to find, if you look. Is the river being contaminated, the one that passes through the city where you live? Are there workers getting paid less than minimum wage or who are working without safety gear? Get to know the people most affected, find out what the rules say, see if you can use those rules to get a slooiutn. If it doesn't work, see if you can come together to improve those rules. Because if we all start knowing law, using law and spihang law, then we will be building that deeper version of democracy that I believe our wlrod desperately needs.

Original Text

Number two, push your politicians and your governments to make this a public priority. Just like health or education, access to justice should be one of the things that a government owes its people, and we're nowhere close to that, neither in rich countries or poor countries. Number three is: be a paralegal in your own life. Find an injustice or a problem where you live. It's not hard to find, if you look. Is the river being contaminated, the one that passes through the city where you live? Are there workers getting paid less than minimum wage or who are working without safety gear? Get to know the people most affected, find out what the rules say, see if you can use those rules to get a solution. If it doesn't work, see if you can come together to improve those rules. Because if we all start knowing law, using law and shaping law, then we will be building that deeper version of democracy that I believe our world desperately needs.
